Cape of Storms

Posted by
dobbino (Cape Town, South Africa) on 28 February 2014 in Landscape & Rural.

Cape Town is the place where I live. It's one of the most beautiful cities in the world, with a wide variety of natural beauty - Table Mountain, the sea, the vineyards - the list just goes on and on. Yet amongst the beauty, is the danger, and many a ship has ended up stranded like these two, beacuse of the treacherous storms along our coastline.

Interesting composition and story. You always read about the dangers of Cape Town for sailors and this image really brings my imagination to life. Thanks for sharing!

This is great documentation of "The Place Where [you] Live."
Table mountain is such an iconic image, but to also have two grounded ships in the photo is terrific.
